What o/s are you running? On OSX open hardrive, open utilities and run
disk utilities. (run repair disc permissions.)

Not sure if this happens to MACs but when my hard drive was dying, it kept restarting whenever it felt like it.

Your first problem is there Macs, second problem is you havent gotten rid of em.



In all seriousness, try reformating the hard drive on the one that slowed down. After u reformat it basicly delete anything u dont need. It works for my comp.

The other one may shut off cause of a power problem, maybe the cord is lose somewere or something?

After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, repair permissions. Click repair permissions

Battery might have a lose connection, or one of the terminals may need cleaning.
